    Default Firefox browser - how to set a permanent text size?

    In Firefox the web page text size can be adjusted via View>Text Size, but this reverts to Normal size after reboot etc.

    How can I get a larger text size to 'stick' for a sight-impaired person?

    Any hints appreciated.

    I use a plugin called "TextZoom" (available from http://www.cosmicat.com/) - which I use to shrink text down automagically. It's a nifty extension which will allow you to shrink/enlarge the default firefox text by any percentage which you specify.

    The plugin used to be available on the Firefox Extensions'n'Themes page however I can't seem to find it there anymore

    Thanks - but this extension doesn't want to install in FF v1.0

    Compatible with Mozilla Firefox 0.9 and 1.0PR.

    Thanks Metla--- it had been annoying me not to have that facility.
